Hospital names members of advisory committees

by Nick Veronin

Officials with El Camino Hospital have named 21 people who will serve on six newly created hospital board committees — groups formed to serve in an advisory role to the hospital's board of directors.

With a wide variety of backgrounds and skills, the 21 men and women have been divided among each committee based on their professional experience. The members will be asked to help the hospital board make decisions on "governance, finance/investments, quality, executive compensation and audit/corporate compliance," according to an El Camino press release.

A majority of the volunteers come from nearby cities on the Peninsula and the South Bay, with a few from the North Bay and East Bay. Together they comprise the Governance Committee; the Quality Patient Care and Patient Experience Committee; the Executive Compensation Committee; the Corporate Compliance/Privacy and Audit Committee; the Finance Committee; and the Investment Committee. A hospital board member will lead each committee.

It would be impossible for the hospital's board of directors to understand everything about every subject, said board chairman John Zoglin in the press release.

"As the healthcare environment continues to evolve it is important to have individuals on the hospital board committee who bring a depth of knowledge and experience in areas that will help us continuously improve how we serve our patients and our community," Zoglin said. "These new members are leaders in their respective fields and we look forward to applying their insight and knowledge as we move our hospital into the future."

The names and current occupations of the new committee members are:

Gary Kalbach, founding partner, El Dorado Ventures, Los Altos Hills; Peter W. Moran, general partner/managing partner, DCM, Los Altos; Mark W. Sickles, chairman and chief executive officer, Mark W. Sickles, LLC, Sausalito.
